Scootin’ around town has now taken a literal translation since actual scooters are suddenly everywhere! As these electric “vehicles” invade downtown areas of cities around the country, we couldn’t help but ask – What’s all the hoopla about? Well, for one (or two or three), they are cheap, convenient, and fun!! But this seemingly innocent and attractive new transit option can come with dangerous risk of serious injury or death if not used properly. Sipping on Hoopla California Cabernet, we discuss the current controversy around the scooter invasion and ponder if they are here to stay or a fad that will fizzle.
Could we BE any happier to have an episode dedicated to our favorite show, FRIENDS?!

Wine in a can?! While it may sound outrageous, the new trend is to can our favorite beverage for convenience, portability, and because it’s the hip new thing. As more and more producers jump on the canned wine train, we have been asking ourselves if we should join this modern movement. So to get to the bottom of the can, so to speak, we decided to compare every aspect of canned vs bottled wine, from taste to cost. We grabbed a bottle and a can of pinot noir from one of the biggest entrepreneurs in the canned wine industry – Union Wine Company – for our taste test challenge. Is the can too good to be true? Or is it the perfect way for wine to be a part of all our adventures? Grab a bottle or can (or both!) and listen in to find out! #pinkiesdown

Happy National Wine & Cheese Day! We couldn’t let this day pass without lending a DBP hand in an attempt to answer the wine-drinker’s million dollar question – what wine should I pair with my food (or vice versa)?! Creating the ideal pairing isn’t quite rocket science, but it’s not always easy either. In this episode we share some tips and tricks for putting together a great pairing. There are certainly some guiding principles to make your mouth do a little happy dance as you sip and nibble, but remember: taste is subjective.
